from him? joining me now is congressman chaffetz, one of the biggest critics of the obama administration's handling of the benghazi attack. what do you want to know? the senate has its own concerns. >> well i would love to know from the president back on june 6th when there was a terrorist attack on our benghazi facility was the president aware of that, what did he do about it. during the attack itself does not appear based on the information the department of defense revealed on friday, that the president took any action or gave any directive for our military to go in and engage in the fire fight and extract our forces and then the third part i want to know about is, why did the president mislead the american people about what happened on the ground because it was clear that the intelligence officers, the state department was able to witness this in real time. there was no indication there was a mob. no indication that a video was the jen ne sis of this. why did the administration for weeks mislead the american people. >> they claim they were not misleading the american p
mitt romney saved it. now the obama administration can spend the next years putting this new effect, the framework upon which future reforms to the health care system are based. the idea of universal health care is probably permanent and mitt romney is a big part of that. >> that's a fascinating theory. >> that's a footnote for it. it's great. >> yeah. conspiracy theorists would say it was all a plan to get obama care implemented. bring romney in, he'll lose, and it will be a validation for obama care to go forward. we have a cheeky metric by which to measure romney's popularity to say, in the hours, the 24 hours following his loss, his likes on facebook fell by more than 10,000. that's a steep and sharp decline. you know, the question is as you said, self-identified romneyists perhaps will not exist. what are romneyists? do they represent some moderate wing of the party that will get overrun by the tea partiers and voices like newt gingrich that think it's all about being more conservative? what does to be a romneyist mean? >> if only he had been clear enough throughout the campaig
you think the election affected the timing of this. did hamas step up its attacks to test the obama administration? did netanyahu act waiting for romney to be elected and not seeing that. >> it's hard to know. i can't get quite in their heads. in that part of the world they're aware of the american political calendar, as everyone is, and there is a sort of freezing of decision making in this period leading up to an american election. let's face it, a president romney would have been a very different approach. >> and probably preferred by netanyahu. >> it's seen that way. paezble to that hamas is testing -- had waited to test until now. the truth is that the arab spring has many, many positive qualities for us in the west. the possibility that the people in that part of the world will be connected with their leadership. the elimination of the democracy deficit, all of those things. but one of the downsides to the arab spring is that we knew how to do business with many of these deck taters and autocrates, we knew how to conduct anti-iranian foreign policy to stop their nuclear develo
that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying, hey, don't let t
and the obama administration over susan rice. she went out on the sunday talk shows and got some of the information wrong about what happened in benghazi. president obama on wednesday strongly defended her in the wake of attacks from senators john mccain and lindsey graham. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation it is outrageous. >> this fight over benghazi is getting nasty peter ogborn. >> yeah, it is. it is. and sadly, it's becoming politicized because there may be a real issue there but who knows. there's so much noise from republicans, especially that we're clouding the issue. >> dan henning with the "full court press" this morning. dan? >> this is the "full court press." >> good morning, gentlemen. oth

the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of this base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care which is basically $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political strategy which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what, they'll vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming an entitled society, that some a
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organize niced to take tunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
the obama administration from defending delma to arguing it is unconstitutional has recommended to the court that its grants in the winter case. there's a lot of petition confront. there's only two cases where there's a court of appeals opinion. the winter case in the second circuit and one from the first circuit. i think the winter case is the more likely one, in part because the justice department has recommended that. so i really think that case is going to become that case is going to be a. i would be extremely surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case. and we cannot get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. the other two cases, the famous case which chad those a little bit about, is the prop eight case in california. that's from ninth circuit appeals decision, which by a two to one vote struck down prop eight. the supreme court denied search. the impact of that will be to affirm the ninth circuit opinion and prop eight will be unconstitutional. i think it's a big question what the court is going to do. there aren't and speak to the court that look, you don

into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the

are the some of the temporary stimulus measures in the early obama administration and also in 2011 that were temporary tax cuts that were designed to give the economy a boost by their nature that are temporary and should be revisited. we may conclude the economy still needs that boost and that is totally appropriate. some of it is the alternative minimum tax that is basically always broken and always needs some changes to it. the sequesters on domestic and defense spending are products of the blackmail episode of 2011 when congressional leaders refused to enter, refused to do as is routinely done and extend the debt limit and created this sequester as a way to force some action they had no intention of doing themselves. but the biggest part of it comes from the bush tax cuts and the reason the bush tax cuts expire is an interesting story. in 2001 and 2003, 2001 we had a budget surplus and both democrats and republicans wanted to cut taxes. democrats wanted to cut them half as much and put more emphasis on the middle class, less on tax cuts for the rich. republicans did not only want, they wa

of conversation is likely to be news we are just now getting out of washington. the obama administration signaling that it is expanding the multi-year crackdown on bribes paid by u.s. companies to foreign officials under the foreign corrupt practices act and the administration out with new guidelines, 120 pages. the act that's been in place since the carter administration is too vague and putting u.s. companies at a competitive disadvantage. so now the department of justice and the securities exchange commission out with 120 pages of guidelines talking about what is a bribe, who is a foreign official. we've put all of these guidelines on our website. cnbc.com. you can read more about it. this is again something that business leaders have been clamoring for but they want changes in the law. we'll see if the guidelines are enough to ease their concerns. back to you. >> thank you very much, scott. let's get to it then. the clock is ticking in d.c. today on the fiscal cliff. 1:30 obama will hold his first news conference from the election. he's clearly not negotiating from the middle and ceos will tre

moment. i think the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is not coming back again. you have to pick your fights and pick them according to national interests. i think what will be fascinating in the mideast, as you saw in libya, where we got into a discussion, a debate between the republican defense secretary, robert gates, who said there is no national interest here and people like secretary clinton, susan rice and others who said we have a responsibility to protect and not was the argument for going in and -- that was the argument for going in. that argument remains unsettled today, and that is the doubt i think you were picking up on in your question. >> i will make several comments. in europe, a look at it this way. first, when you look at, globally, countries, the united states has had the capability, and even in this period of time, but secondly, it is the united states that has taken the responsibility and stepped forward. i cannot point to another country that has been willing to take that responsibility. having said that, david refers to how we

. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you know, i'll address the families not through the press, i'll address the families directly as i already have. and we'll provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. that's what the investigation is for. but as i said repeatedly, if people don't think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who i sent there and who were carrying out miss on behalf of
administration and president obama is going to have a decision very much like the one president bush had in 2002. right now we need to step back and think creatively. are there other scenarios that we can work that can get a good result in iran? without leaving the president of the united states where he only has two choices? go to war, or accept a nuclear- powered iran. neither of those is attractive. now is the time to think of it -- think creatively about an acceptable outcome in iran and avoid the halcyon choice. >> are you concerned about is real? >> interesting, israel has a lot at stake, but they are also an independent decision maker. they have their own interest in this and have made it clear that they are not prepared to except without some of the military action iran with a clear path to a nuclear weapon. one scenario would be for the illustration to try to engage with the iranians diplomatically. with the other countries involved in the so called p five. offering a robust disclosure to the iranians if there regime will give up its nuclear program. to test them, to see if there is a d
is administration officials are already suggesting to congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass. >> new york state alone is estimated storm damage at $50 billion. that would make sandy the second most expensive storm in u.s. history after only katrina. >>> airline officials say more pilots are leaving the job and government rules require new pilots to have much more flight experience. >> this strikes me as a cynical effort on the part of some in the industry to cry wolf. >> look at what happened in the pit. things got a little hot at the nascar race. >>> nfl commissioner roger goodell said the high quality of hd tv is hurting the games because the experience of watching at home is so good. is it, though, say guys with wives? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. investigators want to know why it took so long to learn of the affair. >> another woman said she received threatening e-mails from petraeus's mystery. bob ohr is in washington. >> all this started a few months ago when a woman in tampa got harassing e-mails she turned over to the fbi. they were tracked
this time i think is administration officials are suggesting to members of congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass, to let things go the cliff if he can't get a deal he wants. it's a strong negotiating tool. charlie, norah, gayle. >> bill plante, thank you. powerful explosion devastated a neighborhood in indianapolis over the weekend. twhoems were left in pieces and the fire damaged dozens more. as terrell brown reports fire officials are trying to figure out the cause of the blast. >> reporter: two people were killed by the massive blast that was heard for miles. and left this indianapolis neighborhood littered with debris. >> i first thought it was a bomb. >> reporter: in every direction walls crumbled and windows shattered. nearly three dozen homes were damaged or destroyed. >> there are homes that will have to be torn down and there are homes that can be inhabited in the next day two. >> reporter: the explosion happened around 11:00 p.m. saturday causing residents to flee into night. seven were injured. >> house felt like it moved a foot or so. and all we co
suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election, ryan pointed the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't sold on the democrats' agenda. take a listen to this. >> whether the people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support raising tax rates. >> period. >

obama is not about to let a member of his administration get drugged through the mud by the righties. he was also very calculating on his take on the scandal surrounding former cia chief david pezus. >> i am withholding judgment on how the process around general pettia came up. and it's also possible you'd be asking why are we interfering in a criminal investigation. i think it's best right now for to us see how this whole process unfolded. >> the president also showed the immigration he has and pressure on republicans to reach a bipartisan agreement. >> before the election hi given a couple interviews where i had predicted that the latino vote to be strong and that and. >> i gets it's full steam ahead for the president's second term. he knows the work is not over on immigration. that is it going to be a big issue in 2013. climate chang came up today, which is very important to the economy and the economy itself. president obama needs to pain t -- maintain the support of the american people. at one point he was asked "you got a mandate"? >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got
it on bush, last administration, not his fault. well, now it is his fault. >> reporter: in 2009, just after president obama inaugurated, we spent time in king county, we met charlotte mccauley. who told us -- >> i asked god that he would help him truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> reporter: and this is charlotte today at the women's club meeting. you told us four years ago that you hoped that the lord would help barack obama. do you think that happened? >> it does not appear so. >> reporter: and then something we have heard before. what does it bother you the most about the first term? >> not being honest about where he was born, and different like things like that. to me, he seems dishonest. >> reporter: he said he was born in hawaii. said that a long time. i'm wondering if, a, have you heard that? if you have, why don't you believe it? >> i just don't believe anything he says. >> reporter: there are certainly people in king county who don't believe the president about the country of his birth, and they also question his faith.
with president obama since the 2008 presidential election. you mentioned that clip of condoleezza rice. it's worth noting that not only were there wmd intelligence failures in the bush administration, but the intelligence failure to the memo president bush got on osama bin laden determining to strike the united states. condoleezza rice was national security adviser. condoleezza rice should have received tough questions in the confirmation hearing for secretary of state in 2005. >> governor rendell, i can't remember which show it was on. someone brought up the point that you have senator mccain questioning the intellect or the ability of susan rice to carry out a job when the quote was he brought the world sarah palin. >> that's true, too. the fundamental point that we've got to never lose focus on is that susan rice had nothing to do with what happened in benghazi, vis-a-vis the ambassador and the three other americans killed. she had no role in that. she wasn't in the decision-making process. it is why this is so totally unfair and as the president said, it's an attempt to besmurge the re
. president obama appeared before reporters at the white house on wednesday for his first news conference since winning his second term. he made some of his most extensive comments on climate change to date, acknowledging that his administration had fallen short in taking on global warming. >> we have not done as much as we need to. what i am going to be doing over the next several weeks it, next several months, is having a conversation with scientists, engineers, and elected officials to find out what more can we do to make short-term progress in reducing carbons, and then working through an education process that i think it is necessary, a conversation across the country, about what realistically can do long term. >> despite hard to take action on climate change, obama said he will not advance any environmental policy that override economic concerns. >> there is no doubt that for us to take on climate change and a serious way would involve making some tough political choices. understandably, i think the american people right now have been so focused and will continue to focus on our eco
administration, no, sir knot a lot of trust in the obama team of him, fear that he could run for president, not a great relationship between him and the president, seem to have been repaired, had to be part of the backdrop here, a certain lack of trust. >> well, general petraeus spent much of the last decade abroad, he hasser is thfd country very well. did the honorable thing. we have this tendency in washington to want to tear people down when they have made a mistake, when they have fallen -- a legitimate american hero, he has got great contributions to make in the future. he will clearly have to navigate this very difficult personal issue but he has served this country well and this country is more secure today because of general david petraeus and this country owes him a debt of gratitude for that. >> no question about that doris, as i have said this weekend, not exactly a topic that brings husbands and wives closer together. your thoughts about this in terms of what should happen? >> i don't know. i think in general, i wish we could go back to the time when the private lives of our pu
clinton administration when marginal tax rates were 39.6%. that's what president obama is talking about doing. going back to 39.6%. the economy took off. this should be a no-brainer. you're asking people to pay a little bit more to help out the whole fiscal health of the nation. come on. it's time to -- people have been partying since it's been 1999 for like 25 years. it's time to do this very simple thing. >> martin, i would submit what's so hard about it is january 3rd is still ahead of john boehner. he still has to be reb elected speaker by his own caucus. i think the question is can he make this deal before january 1st and still retain his speakership. >> you're saying to me now that the speaker of the house of representatives is more concerned about his continuance in a position that he holds than the nation's economy? >> well, i don't know if it's more he's concerned. i think john boehner feels he should still be in leadership. >> so his personal ap biggs is more important. >> and he is -- more than that, he's practically a hostage so the same 87 tea partiers who are not there. th
during the entire bush administration. by the time president obama is rehydrated on january 20th, there's probably about 300 in his first term. cipro is an example of something the united states was worried about defensively, but was only beginning to go ostensibly at the very end of the bush administration. olympic games, program against iran was something that managed to expand considerably until someone made a programming error and got out to the world. special forces is something we've been lying on far more now as a light footprint strategy than we ever did before. with each one of these repulsive discovered that the return curve of when other powers or nonstate actors will have the same technology is shorter and shorter. so you now, we see china, israel, others have drones now. every nymphet drums right now. it's going to be a very short time. before we do with the other side of that. we're already dealing with cyberattacks each and every day on our infrastructure, not the kind in the olympic games, but similar kinds. the answer to your question is it can reinforce existing power
] >> getting the relationship right is something we will get right in president obama's second term. we have taken steps to that this morning in beijing. this has been an intense focus of the administration. the president had 13 face to face meetings with president obama we have built out an extensive set of mechanisms with channels of communication to work on this relationship and i think it has resulted in a positive and constructive relationship. there will be issues but we put in place a superstructure for the way to manage these issues going forward. i spent an enormous amount of time with the chinese leadership and i think we can have put in place the mechanisms to have a productive and constructive relationship and i look forward to working with the new leadership in beijing. host: related to what he was saying, i want to go back to your piece on foreign affairs -- as the u.s. tries to rebalance its strategic priorities and asia -- explain what that means. guest: it is rebalancing strategic focus on resources. it is a way -- is pointing them away from the middle east. it is clear that
about it, the only reason we didn't have immigration reform during the bush administration is because two gentlemen, rahm emanuel in the house and barack obama in the senate decided to vote for an amendment to the immigration bills that actually help the union. they were backed by the unions, and they decided that they would poison the well by voting for those amendments that killed immigration reform. nobody talks about that in the immediate, but it was liberal labor unions and those barack obama in the senate who decided to poison the well. he did it again this time, and i think as republicans we have to be smarter than we have been on this issue in the past. we have to look past the easy of the other side and find a rational solution to immigrati immigration. >> i find common ground with that analysis, raul, and i think also that marco rubio has done a very good job of articulating some of the things that emerged from this white house, and not, not, i don't know that you can, you can make a very strong case that republicans have been hostile on this dialog so much as it has been th
